is the arizona republic, courtesy of the newseum in washington. do you support executive action on gun-control -- on some gun- control measures? i want to know what you think about president obama using the executive order. this is from the washington post blog. the vast majority of actions he can take are relatively minor in nature, it says. it's unlikely obama can significantly alter gun lost through executive order. what is your take on this? stephan pittman simcom indiana, republican caller. stephen, from indiana. caller: good morning. the problem is congress can steer funding from the atf or fbi on whatever executive action is taken. i understand bush had an executive order dealing with guns as well, so it is not unprecedented. but 19 is kind of high, so you can see this may help the republican party in the midterm elections. you may also see a 2/3 majority vote in the senate and in the house if there is some kind of aggressive stance towards guns, because democratic constituents live in some of the most dangerous districts in america. host: a two-thirds vote to undo executive act

cuts out of president obama. >> yeah. john harwood is in washington with more on this evolving story. john? >> reporter: bill, it is evolving, and we're not going to note answer for some time. you know, while the high-profile issue of the day has been gun control, privately what you've got is members of both parties calibrating their strategy and figuring out how far they can press and what they can get for pressing hard. there are three basic questions that have to be resolved. one is do we have a short-term extension of the debt limit to allow more negotiations, or is it a longer term extension of a year or more? that's what the white house and democrats want. second of all, is it a clean debt limit extension? do republicans give in and say, okay, mr. president, we're not trying to hold the economy hostage and pass a clean debt limit extension, or do they make it a package deal with spending cuts as opposed to negotiating spending cuts in connection with the run out of government funding on march 27th or the budget sequester due to hit on march 1st? third, the question is if they d

lowest point in any polls conducted by the washington post since 1975. those are two numbers we need to keep in mind heading into president obama's second inauguration on monday. yes, there's a lot on his agenda this term. but let's remember. he withstood this. >> you are not allowed to be a president if you're not born in this country. he may not have been born in this country. >> but it's not an american administration. it is a european, socialist administration. >> what people saw last night, i think, was a president that revealed his incompetence, how lazy and detached he is. >> the president was denied and dehumanized. labeled a muslim. one luney web site called him a muslim gay kenyon. that actually happened. but despite all the derangement, he's come up on top and he's ready for the second term fights. joining me now is patricia murphy, editor of jane politics and contributor for the daily beast. and joe ma dayson, nationally syndicated radio host of sirius xm's, the power. thank you both for joining me tonight. >> thank you. >> joe, resilience is a good word to describe presi

expect to happen in washington. and you know, ron mentioned the obama campaign organization. that surprised a lot of us, myself included, by the way they will be able to deliver voters to the polls in november with a turnout that we didn't expect among young people and african-americans and others so maybe we'll be surprised. >> susan page, ron fournier, thank you so much. appreciate you coming in. >>> we also have congressman chris van hollen who will be coming up after the break to answer that question, what we expect to happen. we will have that just coming up. >>> and in other news, we could finally start seeing some aid flowing to the victims of hurricane sandy. 79 days after the storm. the much debated, much delayed $50 billion bill passed the house last night with just 49 republican votes as conservatives continue to question where the money's coming from. new york, new jersey and connecticut's governors released this statement. the tradition of congress being there and providing support for americans during times of crisis, no matter where they live across this great
, and around 10 to 20 at reagan. the metropolitan washington port authority said obama's jet set popularity has fallen by more than 50%. granted, the whole inauguration this year is smaller this time. it's not the big historic event it was in 2009. during these budget cutting times, having fewer private jets fly to washington may not be a bad thing. but it is no secret that obama is less popular today with the super rich. congress just raising their taxes. and two years ago, he personally called for an end to tax breaks for private jet owners. it's no wonder some of them are keeping their jets at home this year. read more on cnbc.com. >> is it possible they're just taking a delta shuttle? >> maybe. but they kind of are voting with their tail fins this year. what's interesting is obama is on the one hand saying the rich need to pay their fair share, but also raising more money from the wealthy in this inauguration than last time. last year he had a $50,000 cap on what you could contribute to the inauguration ball. this year he's asking for $250,000, up to $1 million from corporations to contribu
